Gwen grew up in central Iowa, and went to school at Cornell College. She got her bachelor’s in history and obtained a teaching certificate in History, Government, and Psychology. During her time at Cornell, Gwen participated in their nationally ranked Mock Trial program as both a closing attorney, and a student coach.
Gwen spent two years after college teaching at a tiny Quaker boarding school in Iowa, then moved out to California in 2018. She’s known she wanted to become a teacher since she started Kindergarten, and is super excited about the Fusion approach to learning!
Gwen loves reading, playing video games, and travelling. She’s been to Austria, Greece, Mexico, Poland, Hungary, and Czechia, as well as numerous trips around the US, all within the last few years, and is hoping to travel to Japan soon!
